Nairobi - Let the best man win.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has refused to intervene in the supremacy battle between Kiambu Governor William Kabogo and Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu.
The two leaders are engaging in an at times embarrassing battle as both look to win the Kiambu Governor's seat in the 2017 General Elections.
They have gone through the motions already. Public outbursts, insults and are now in court.
Their battle has not gone unnoticed by President Kenyatta and State House honchos but he has chosen to keep his distance at the moment.
" The President has chosen to keep his distance. It will mean that the battle between the two will not end any time soon," a source at State House told News24.
The battle begun soon after Waititu declared interest in Kabogo's seat in the 2017 polls.
The two have now ended up in court with Kabogo trying to prove that Waititu has no university degree which is a constitutional requirement for those seeking to run for a Governor's seat in Kenya.
" It is messy but maybe it is the best way to see who is the best man for the job," the source added.
Waititu has garnered massive support among MPs who state that they will back him come the 2017 elections which has angered Kabogo.
